MRI Wiesbaden: What magnetic resonance imaging can do
An MRI is a radiation-free, imaging diagnostic procedure with a wide range of possibilities. The examination makes it possible to detect various diseases or injuries. These include bone fractures or overstretching and tearing of ligaments and tendons. MRI can also be used to detect vascular changes and stenoses, inflammations and the extent of arthrosis.
Magnetic resonance imaging can also provide important findings in tumor diagnostics. With this examination, the suspicion of cancer can be confirmed or, in the best case, ruled out. It can also be used to find any metastases that may be present. It is also important with regard to the therapy itself. In the course of follow-up, MRI can be used to find out whether a therapy is effective.

MRI Wiesbaden: no claustrophobia
Great advantages in Dr. Jung’s radiology practice are not only her experience and specialization and the extensive MRI capabilities, but also the MRI machine itself. Dr. Jung works with the Magnetom Aera, which has an especially wide opening of 70 cm (currently the largest opening available on the market).
The magnet tunnel is bright, well ventilated and looks friendly with its round contours. The tube of the device is very short at 125 cm. In this way, the head or even the entire upper body can be positioned outside the tube for many examinations. This is a real relief for patients with claustrophobia. With a short examination time, constant supervision and a generally relaxed examination atmosphere, the service factor is high.
